Utah and Arizona State Seals
While I was walking around on the top of the Hoover Dam, I found these very lovely bronze state seals for Arizona and Utah. The seals are embedded in a decorative cement base for two huge statues on the Nevada side of the dam. I will get to the statues later in another post. I decided to show these two seals because of my earlier post about the Utah beehive and seal. Arizona's seal has the motto "Ditat Deus" which is supposed to be Latin for "God Provides." Google Translate renders the saying as "God Enriches."
The images look skewed because if I took the picture directly above the seal, I would have cast a shadow, so we have to live with the skewed images.
